    Crazy to think that one stop in the third quarter could be the deciding factor, but at this rate one misstep and Baylor is going to be down 2 TDs.

    Refs got that one wrong, definitely a fumble.

    Yeah
    JT was a bit overboard there.
    But just his opinion, so no big deal:D

    Fwiw
    Geno Smith does look very good w 5 TDs and no picks.
    Current score is 42-35 WVU early in the 3rd
    Zero defense here

    Defense sucks, but Geno Smith is a great football player.

    This game is over. Looks like WVU made defensive adjustments. Baylor did not.

    Yup, he is impressive. WVU O looks like TT @ their best and then some.

    The biggest difference is they run the ball MUCH better than Tech ever did and they have a greater variety of plays. Tech's offense was bubble screens, crossing routes and comeback routes.

    True, but there were a few years tech, under the angry pirate, had a pretty serviceable running game. By no means balanced, but they did use it as a good change-of-pace that kept D-coordinators thinking.

    How does this guy keep getting wide freaking open? Have these morons never heard of double coverage?

    Both of the defenses look awful, but you have to remember they are both playing against very high powered offenses... and both offenses are in their groove...

    WVA has more speed and a better QB than Tech ever had.

    These guys with these high-tempo offenses are in tremendous condition. Pretty amazing, really.

    These teams might break the NCAA single game combined yardage record.

    Didn't get to watch the second half:( Baylor loses for the first time in almost a calendar year.

    But it seems predictably the Baylor d line played poor and Geno made them look even worse.

    Proud of the offense...not sure what that says about WVU defense however, does either team deserve to be ranked after a 70-63 score though? I think both deserve to lose the top 25 ranking after that, at least for a week.

    Geno is the Heisman favorite for certain.

    I dont think any team ranked above WVU or Baylor wants any part of em. If I were an opposing DC they scare the you know what out of me.

    That 1-handed catch on WVU's last drive was unreal.

    But sorry, 63 points and 581 passing yards to Baylor?...Color me skeptical.

    See ya next week Geno.

    If Texas can't beat WVU next weeked I don't see anyone beating them. Everyone else is either garbage, has a terrible defense or has to go to Morgantown.
